Chisels, Surgical, Pituitary Gland
Definition : Surgical chisels designed to open the sellar (i.e., sella turcica) floor to access the pituitary gland. These chisels typically consist of a handheld, manual instrument including a flat blade with a cutting edge that is beveled on one side with depth markings at the distal end and an integral handle. Pituitary gland (hypophysis) chisels are used mainly in surgical procedures intended to excise pituitary tumors.
